PORT SAID, Egypt, March 29. (jpj The odds are on the Iman Yahia of Yemen, says his rooters. They don't concede Ibn Saud of Hedjaz and Nejd a lookin, for all his 100 wives. Be that as it may, the hot fight on central Arabia's scorching desert sands is attracting a lot of interest here. _ ',. "Tahia, an Arabian ruler pictured by his enemies as a sort of Scrooge of the desert, is doing battle with Ibn Saud in fierce border warfare. At present they are going at it in the pricipality of Asir, a region claimed by both. Discipline Superior. Yahia's boosters say his method of discipline is superior. He is said to hold one child of every tribal chief as a hostage, under threat of putting it to death if the chief rebels. Ibn Saud, it is said, looks upon this with distaste and calls it unhu- manitarian. His mind runs to different methods. He is popularly declared to have married ,100 wives, picking them from various tribes so as to cement the bonds of loyalty. To be sure, the story goes that he divorced all but three, -but that makes little difference. Divorce under these circumstances is not considered as casting dishonor on the released wife. Heavily* in Debt. Ibn Saud, reputedly most gener. ous and as a result heavily in debt, .s contrasted with Yahia. The latter spends little and is reported to have $50,000,000 in the royal treasury jesides a personal fortune mounting nto millions. The Iman's followers point proud ly to his trained army of 10,000 saying Ibn Saud has to rely on tribal warriors. But ibn Saud'a ad mirers predict a smashing victory as soon as the king can get awaj from religious ceremonies now tak ing place and assume personal com mand of bis men.
